Our August update focuses on improved management of Tasks within your team, and making it easier to see the information you need on a Step.
Filter Tasks per folder
In the "My Tasks" and "All Tasks" sections of Process Bliss there is now a filter that lets you narrow down the list of Tasks according to the folder the associated template belongs to.
As our users often place Templates into folders by team (for example 'HR', 'Sales' or 'Engineering') we've added the capability to filter by those folders. This makes it much easier to manage your Team's workflow, or to find the Templates specific to the team you work in. More team management features are coming soon!
Changes to Step importance
We've had feedback that the "Optional" label on steps gave the wrong impression to users, and that it wasn't easy to see steps that absolutely had to be completed in a task.
To make "Essential" steps more prominent, we're removing the "Optional" label, and changing the default step importance to "Standard".
We've also made some changes to the filters inside a task and on the report, so that you can now choose to see "Essential" steps by themselves, which allows you to track the most important activities.
This makes "Essential" steps particularly useful when viewed as milestones in a longer Template that may have twenty or more steps. Simply click "Essential steps only" to see a simpler view of milestone progress across Tasks.
Images embedded within steps & open in the same window
Lots of you have told us how it would be useful to be able to see the images when completing a step, rather than having to open them in a new window.
Images now appear directly in the step, and clicking on them opens them in the same window, over the step. This allows you to see the information you need at a glance, making it quicker to complete your work.
You can use this feature for screenshots of an application to show where data should be entered, or to show a picture of the tool or location that a Step refers to as an example.
We hope these features will make it easier to manage and complete tasks in Process Bliss. We're continually working on new ways to make the software even better for you, and every piece of feedback is welcomed and discussed within the team.
